Coraline - Neil Gaiman Oh my gosh, this book scared the heck out of me, but I LOVE it. I read the entire thing in one sitting! (It's not a very long read.) It's about this girl who finds this sort of alternate universe in her house, where everything looks the same, except her parents are creepy zombies who basically want to turn her into a creepy zombie. I'm making this sound more complicated than it actually is. Anyway, just read it. It rocks.
